By Steve812 on Sep 23, 2017 1:57 PM, concerning Annie's Annuals & Perennials:

I have ordered perennials via mail order almost every year for more than twenty five years. With most suppliers I have had very mixed results. With only a few notable and outdated exceptions either the cultivars were just wrong for my location and would not grow regardless of how healthy the plants might have been when they arrived, or the cultivars were suitable but far too many of the plants themselves were in bad shape when they arrived. Or I could not order them at the one time of year best suited to planting them.

These problems have (almost all) disappeared since I found Annie's. They have a large selection of plants well suited to the Western United States, and their website is very good at helping one find plants that are cold hardy, drought resistant, deer and rabbit resistant, and so on. The plants (almost) always arrive it tip-top shape. And I can order for delivery during late monsoon season which is early August.

I've been especially happy with their selection of fragrant pinks which seem to persist in my garden, adding fragrance for great swathes of the calendar year. Their gaillardias, too, have become a mainstay of my summer borders. I've had less luck than I expected with their anchusas. And I cannot keep their either their 'drought tolerant' St Johns wort or their cheiranthus alive through a hot summer if I stand over them all day with a watering hose. I'd love it if there were a few more agastache and salvia to choose from. Still there's a good selection of suitable plants, and my success rate - as compared to other sources - is high.

It is clear that Annie (or maybe Annie's copy writer) has great taste and seems to get a genuine and infectious thrill out of growing, propagating, and writing about plants. The whole experience begins to feel a bit like a guilty pleasure. Hard to do better than this.

I was very pleased to come across this company at a fall plant sale today. Their plants are GORGEOUS! Extremely healthy looking. The sales people were very knowledgeable and their inventory was well priced. I looked at the website when I got home and found they have many more things. The plants are in small pots, but if you have the time to let them grow you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend.

By ycayasso on Sep 7, 2017 9:57 AM, concerning Oakes Daylilies:

I decided to place my very first Daylily order with Oakes and was not disappointed. All the plants were healthy and with at least 3 to four fans on each plant. They also sent me a bonus plant, little grapette which fit in very nicely. All of them had several nice blooms after planting so I expect they will do even better next year after being more established.

By tx_flower_child on Aug 11, 2017 9:21 PM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

Victory Seed Company. Boy, howdy! How to write the absolutely, totally, most perfect review? I've been the fortunate recipient of not 1 but 2 gift certificates for their seeds. My first order was placed on a Sunday night (8/6/2017 if you must know) and I requested that it be sent by USPS 1st class mail. Well was I ever surprised when it was in my mailbox the following Wednesday, 8/9.

I'd love to tell you how well the seeds germinated and grew, but I've only had them for 2 days. However, I have total confidence that these seeds are going to perform wonderfully and beat any taste test around. I finally had to quit looking at their online catalog because it was making me too hungry!

Someone else has already written a review detailing the company and its standards. Agree, agree, agree. Victory Seed Company should be everyone's 'go to' for buying seeds. Their mission statement says it all:
"Preserving the future, one seed at a time."

A side note is that I exchanged a few emails with Mike Dunton regarding 'how to' and then moving on to this, that, and the other. Not something I would expect from most businesses. Very personable and friendly. Now really. How could anyone ask for more?

By katesflowers on Aug 4, 2017 1:08 PM, concerning Jung Seeds & Plants:

I've been a Jungs customer for years. This year I had a failure and reported it to them within the required time frame. I was promptly given a credit to be used any time I wish. I will order again, knowing they stand behind their product.

By dogsmom1 on Aug 4, 2017 6:47 AM, concerning The Blooming Farm:

Just received an order from what I believe is a new grower in New Hampshire, The Blooming Farm - no website yet but there is a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/group...), search for The Blooming Farm if the link doesn't take you to the correct location. New owners, in the process of moving plants from another grower who sold her property to a developer and sold the plants to Blooming Farm. Nevertheless they took the time to respond to my request for plants I was attempting to replace, learned how to pack and ship. Shipping cost was reasonable for Priority Mail. Kept in touch with me via email - very responsive. Plants were large size fans, three per plant, packed very well, shipped quickly so they arrived with the roots still in great condition, could have been planted directly upon unpacking. However, I did the usual, soaked for a few hours, then planted. Well identified with two name tags per bundle so if one slipped off there was still an ID. Even the unexpected bonus plant was a large, three-fan healthy looking plant. Can't wait to see them bloom next year and definitely recommend the grower.

By plantmanager on Aug 2, 2017 10:18 AM, concerning Young's Garden:

I recently ordered some special Sempervivums from them. The order was shipped promptly and they all arrived in fine shape. Once they are all planted up I'll be ordering more from them. They have a nice range of plants.

By janinilulu on Jul 31, 2017 6:59 PM, concerning J.L.Hudson, Seedsman:

This is one of the few seed vendors I order from every year (sometimes twice in a season) and whose catalog I look forward to and actually read. Prices are good, shipping costs are very low and customer service is prompt and courteous. Highly recommended.

By SpringGreenThumb on Jul 30, 2017 4:24 PM, concerning New Hampshire Hostas:

I absolutely love NH Hosta. I have made 4 orders so far and intend to place more.
Their potted plants are clean, well packaged, and protected.
At this point in time I'm afraid to buy mail order Hosta from anyone but NH Hosta.

By mystlw on Jul 28, 2017 4:54 PM, concerning The Perennial Plant Peddler:

I found The Perennial Plant Peddler online, spent hours browsing their gorgeous daylily photos, and since they had so many of the daylilies on my Want List I just had to make a trip across state to visit their beautiful gardens. The women I met with were extremely friendly, hard-working, and very knowledgeable. The daylily plants were all HUGE and healthy. The clumps I purchased are large and incredible, and my bonus plants were awesome. The bonus plants were worth about half of my order, and one of them -- Omega Red -- is almost as tall as I am (5' 2")!!
The Perennial Plant Peddler also offers other perennials, like irises and hostas, but I can't speak to those as I don't collect them, and visited too late to see most of the irises in bloom. They don't ship (though I hope they will in the future), but if you are ever in that part of Ohio I would highly recommend a visit.
I will definitely make another trip, it's absolutely worth it!

By texaskitty111 on Jul 22, 2017 3:23 PM, concerning Cobrahead:

I bought the long cobrahead and mini package. Both work great at pulling up weeds, and loosening the soil. Love the smooth handle on the long one.
